That's ok that it looks nice but what about performance? This question is more important. Can it outperform what the Mac Book Air can do?

I don't think it'll match Core2 clock for clock, the Air having 1.6ghz C2D chip. If it did, they'll actually be competitive in the high end. It beats the Atom clock for clock, which is what it's trying to do. It also won't cost 1.8k, which is what the Air costs.

Well what I gather from the article is that it's not meant to compete with the Atom netbook cpu. It's supposed to compete with the Ultra Low Power CPU's and when they say that then I expect them to produce a product that is competitive. If they are going to build a product to compete with the MacBook air then I expect competitive performance or don't bother. If it can't compete with the Air then don't say your competing with the air. If you going to compete with netbook cpu's then say your doing that. \

I'm going on what is written in the article and I'm taking it literally.

That's the only thing they're comparing to the Air. Try reading the article.

 That's saying that a Stretch Hummer is as long as Obama's limo. That doesn't mean that the Stretch Hummer competes directly with Obama's limo.  (Just an example, not actual facts).
